Grant Balfour isn’t going to let this issue go silently into the night. After the Orioles backed out of a two-year, $15 million contract with Balfour, the right-hander said he is considering filing a grievance. He continued to defend himself, saying that he has multiple doctors on his side vouching for his health. He also has a consistent track record of health and consistency over the last six seasons.

It will be interesting to see how this all plays out. Maybe the Orioles can be banned from signing free agents, the way they were in South Korea? I kid, kind of.
